{the first 3-kid outing}

Thanks to my mom and little sister's help, I got out of the house with all three kids and made it to a local play park on Tuesday!  It was a tad windy but the sun was warm and quite spring-like!  We had loads of fun!


Eli got some energy out and a couple friends met us there to play as well!  





Baby girls slept in the stroller at first, but then decided to wake up, have a snack, and enjoy the beautiful weather, too.

 My mom - super Grammy!

 I can hardly believe Eli is 3 already!  His birthday is a week before his sisters birthday.
He looks like an 8 year old to me... compared to the babies who weigh 6lbs at the moment.  I'm doing my best to soak up all these moments while the twins are still tiny.  
Eli kisses them on the head, but doesn't want to hold them yet, which is understandable.

Next week will be my first go at being home by myself without a 2nd (or 3rd) adult here to assist... it will either be a smashing success or mass choas - which is more likely.  The state of the house will be the deciding factor, in my mind!  

And on the sewing & quilting front:
I haven't touched my sewing machine since before having the babies, which I hope to remedy soon.  Even if only in small spurts...

Thanks for stopping by!

Boy, you have your hands full in a wonderful way! I'm actually a little jealous, my youngest is 20 years next months so I have to resort to babying our dog!
